However, with the transition from WhatsApp to different chat applications, a different step came from the company. The date on which the new confidentiality agreement will enter into force is set forward three months 15 May 2021 was determined.

Whatsapp Blog’da in shared announcement The following statements were made:

“We heard from so many people how confused there is with our last update. There is a lot of misinformation that causes concern and we want to help everyone understand our principles and correct information.

WhatsApp is built on a simple idea: what you share with friends and family stays between you. This means that we will always protect your personal conversations with end-to-end encryption so neither WhatsApp nor Facebook can see these private messages. For this reason, we do not keep records of the people everyone texts or calls. We also cannot see your shared location and we do not share your contacts with Facebook.

None of our above mentioned principles will change in this privacy agreement update. Instead, the update will include new options where people need to send messages to a business via WhatsApp and provide more transparency in how we collect and use data. Although not everyone is shopping with a business on WhatsApp today, we think more people will choose it in the future, and it is important to us that people are aware of these services. This update never expands our ability to share data with Facebook.

Now, I ask people to study and accept the terms. We take forward the date that will be requested. No one’s account will be suspended or deleted on February 8, 2021. We will also work harder to eliminate false information and tell the truth about how privacy and security work on WhatsApp. Next, 15 May 2021Before our new privacy policies are introduced at, we will approach people gradually to have everyone review the policy.

WhatsApp has helped bring end-to-end encryption to people around the world, and we are determined to defend this security technology now and in the future. Thanks to everyone who reached out to us and the many who helped spread the truth and stop the rumors. We will continue to put everything we have to make WhatsApp the best way to communicate privately. ”


According to this statement made on WhatsApp Blog, the confidentiality agreement planned to be implemented in February is 15 May 2021was taken to. Between this process, WhatApp will make an outstanding effort to eradicate the rumors. Let’s see, we will see together what will be the reaction of users to this in the coming days.
